We are honoured to announce that the Association for Scottish Literary Studies has commissioned us to produce an adaptation of the poem The First Men on Mercury by the great Edwin Morgan. It will come in the form of a four page, full colour comic, and will be published as a pamphlet given out free in Scotland in autumn 2009.
We’re thrilled to be working on this. Adapting poetry into comics is proving to be a really interesting project, and the poem being largely dialogue based, is ideally suited to this. You can read the poem itself here.
We’ll be posting more on this as the project develops.
